Words for your ears

I haven’t written any poetry for while as I haven’t been paying enough attention to get inspired. This is not an excuse (it would be a pretty poor one if it was), it’s just how it is. I’ve been concentrating on my family, my work and writing a little bit (a tiny, minuscule bit) of my novel. But I am writing. And at the request of a few people, I have also started to upload a few of my older pieces to Soundcloud. Here’s one of them:

If you enjoyed Becky’s words, head over to her blog, Β Only See Your Good Side and Thumbing a thought, where she writes a poem every day (that’s right, every day),Β to read more of them.
